Tubi announced today that it will be a launch partner for PlayStation 5, meaning that PlayStation users will have access to Tubi’s free library of TV shows and movies through direct integration on the PlayStation 5 search interface. Tubi will have a featured row on the video home screen, making the free content even easier to find.
In addition to being available on the console at launch, Tubi says future plans include bringing access to live streaming news, weather, and entertainment via News on Tubi – the company’s latest product featuring content from over 17 FOX stations in major markets, NBC News Now, Bloomberg, and many others.
“We’ve enjoyed a robust partnership with PlayStation and are thrilled to continue our synergy for the launch of its next-generation console,” said Andrea Clarke-Hall, Global Head of Business Development at Tubi. “The Tubi app will be one of a select number of turnkey downloads for PlayStation users, furthering our mission to provide easy access to premium content for everyone.”
Tubi recently announced that it had reached 33 million monthly active users, a 65% increase year over year. The free streaming service saw 200 million hours of content watched since April.
In addition to PlayStation 5, Tubi is available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Amazon Echo Show, Google Nest Hub Max, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on OTT devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Vizio TVs, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, and soon on Hisense TVs globally. Consumers can also watch Tubi content on the web.
